The attraction, is just the second venture for company Inflate N Play. It's first attraction opened in Blackpool in April last year.

Bosses say that as well as having fun on all the inflatables, visitors will benefit from a healthy workout as they tackle the variety of obstacles.

Open for all ages, the centre revolves around a science theme with Professor Bounce being the company's mascot.

Paul Bolus, one of the firm's four directors, said: "This is our second site in the UK with a further 15 planned over the next 12 months.

"There is a limited number of attractions within the Canterbury area - in fact, this will be the first inflatable arena of this kind in Kent."

Due to being set up in a school sports hall, the arena will be open at the weekends and during holidays, but deflated during the week. Tickets are already available to book for the opening weekend of January 25 and 26 via the website and start at £6.95.

The large Canterbury site will boast slides, a slime pit and magnet mountain.

Inflate N Play also hope to offer birthday parties and charity events - which organisers have found to be popular at its Blackpool site.

Inflate N Play is the second new attraction for Canterbury in recent months after its first indoor rock climbing centre, Chimera, opened on the Wincheap Industrial Estate at the end of 2019.

Other big events in Kent this weekend include a number of Chinese New Year parades. Find more details about those here.
